History

Our mandate is to set the church as a city on a hill. To equip and train God's leaders to take their place. In essence, our mandate is to help you fulfill yours. With a full training mechanism for the fivefold ministry and profound foundation principles for the Christian life, we have an inheritance for the Body of Christ.

Our Origin Story

By: Craig and Colette Toach

Our journey began when we boarded a plane in 1998 with, our then, two small daughters. Waving goodbye to our country, South Africa, we began our 24-hour journey. Six suitcases, two kids and with a fire for God, we entered into full-time ministry in Mexico. A time of training and foundation laying started the moment our feet hit Mexican soil.

It did not take long for us to see that the Lord had a much larger vision than we first realized. The Lord began giving us a revelation of the Fivefold Ministry and before long our training mechanism began taking shape. There were many other detours along the way, one which sent us to Switzerland for a number of years, where we found some of the mighty warriors that are still with us today.

The Lord added yet two more children to us, making us the proud parents of four children.

The original ministry was named Global Ministry Resources, but the Lord had more for us. The vision was not complete. While we had a hunger to produce ministry resources, Craig and I hungered to get into the lives of God's people in a practical way. We were not content to provide resources from afar. We wanted to be involved in the lives of those we trained. And so Apostolic Movement International began to take shape as an entity of its own.

With the baby called "Apostolic Movement International" in our hands, the Lord did not waste any time. Our first ministry center in the United States was birthed and spiritual children were literally dropped at our doorstep. It was a bit much to take in at first. Could we, just small timers from South Africa truly be called to change the world?

Well the Lord calls the weak and foolish and we surely qualified. We did the only thing we knew... we just walked in obedience. When God said left, we turned. When He said stop, we put on the brakes. We look up today and see the map we have forged through the years and stand in awe of what God has done. Mexico is still very much our home, but from there we have established a long-standing ministry center in San Diego that is a bustle of activity, now run by Apostles Nathan and Chaifa Berry.

In 2013 A.M.I founded our first ministry center in South Africa and each year it has doubled in growth and influence. Apostles Philip and Anja Sager oversee its growth.

In 2015 the Lord opened the doors for us once again in Switzerland, Berne and we are very proud to work with the pastors of that work Ueli and Esther Schaer who reach into the community and invest countless hours in one on one ministry in mentorship and pastoring God’s leaders.

At present the Lord has us traveling internationally to declare the truth of what God is doing in His church. We come with a message, "The rain is coming! Get ready!" Training up the fivefold ministry, mentoring the leaders and setting the apostles in place, the influence we have in the Church expands daily.

Today Apostolic Movement International stands in the fullness of everything God taught us since 1998. We present a host of resources for churches and individuals to use towards their calling. Workshops, seminars and live training is a daily occurrence. Our greatest accomplishment though is not the host of schools, teachings and books we have published - but the lives we have invested into.

Our origin story is not one that ends, because the greatest inheritance Craig and I have are our spiritual children and disciples. Only they know the hours we have personally invested into their lives. Only they know the true work we have done. Many judge you by the size of your lists and success of your conference. I hold up the lives of our children and disciples as our fruit.

They are the ones that will take this message to the next generation and our greatest prayer is that they will do so by surpassing us in both anointing and deed.

Spiritual Family

 

Although we would love to list all of our spiritual sons and daughters here, the list would be rather long, so we have listed those who are actively involved in ministry. Our spiritual parenting reaches beyond those in ministry and we are very proud of the sons and daughters we have that are a part of our lives who we get to help in their day to day walk with the Lord.
